World Cup Qualifiers UEFA Weekend Parlay: Trusting German Powerhouse

World Cup Qualifiers Last Stage Parlay +251

Group J leaders Germany are on a mission when they travel to play Armenia on Sunday, while Serbia will make it very tough for Cristiano Ronaldo and Company in Lisbon.

Armenia vs. Germany (Group J) - Sunday, November 14, 12:00 p.m. ET

Armenia vs. Germany Odds

Surprisingly Germany dropped points in this group. Ok, it was just that one mistake back in March when they lost at home 2-1 to North Macedonia, who were priced at that time at +3300. So the people who actually went with an away win should receive the betting gold medal.

Germans hardly ever lose to England in major tournaments, but Joachim Low’s era ended with a loss to England in the Euro 2020 round-of-16 clash. On 25 May 2021, the German Football Association announced that former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick signed a three-year contract to serve as the manager of the German national team.

Hansi Flick made the most successful start to a German head coach’s career, winning six games in a row and scoring 27 goals in the process. They dominated every single match, and they kept five clean sheets in the process.

Bayern Munich stars Niklas Sule, Joshua Kimmich, Jamal Musiala, and Serge Gnabry are currently isolated after Sule tested positive for COVID-19 while Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz is injured. However, that’s not a problem for Flick and Company because they can form at least three world-class squads.

Germany has won all four of its previous meetings with Armenia, with an aggregate score of 21-2. In the reverse match, Germany beat Armenia 6-0 on home soil, and they enter this clash on the back of a 9-0 win against Liechtenstein. They were the first team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after hosts Qatar, and they are eager to finish this campaign in style.

On the other side, Armenia got destroyed 5-0 at home by North Macedonia, showing once again their limits. You can’t rely on every single match on AS Roma’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan. He can’t solve a game on his own, mostly on Sunday when he will face one of the best teams in the world. Against North Macedonia, they recorded just one shot on target. They are winless in their previous eight games across all competitions, and they failed to find the back of the net in four of the last six World Cup qualifying games.

No matter the starting XI, Germany should have enough to cover the -2.5 spread on Sunday.

1st Parlay Pick: Germany -2.5 (-125)

Portugal vs. Serbia (Group A) - Sunday, November 14, 2:45 p.m. ET

Portugal vs. Serbia Odds

This is a must-win for Serbia, while Portugal will be happy also with a draw. Because they are now equal on points (17 each), and if the two teams finish on equal points at the end of the season, the score difference will be the tiebreaker, with Portugal having a better defense.

That means we are in for a classic. Serbia’s attacking firepower is immense. Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic and Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic will lead the attacking line, Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Ajax’s Dusan Tadic, and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic, all attacking midfielders will compete for two spots in the starting line-up. So much quality and fighting spirit, and still Serbia are underrated, priced at +600 on the three-way Moneyline with Bet365.

Yes, Portugal is at home. If Fernando Santos has no other plans, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, and Diogo Jota will probably be back in the starting XI. They will look better than against the Republic of Ireland. Portugal will be without the services of Pepe, though, following his red card against Ireland.

We are so tempted to go with Serbia +1 at +105, but we have another approach because this game is like a final, and Portugal is playing at home. Still, Serbia is powerful all over the pitch. They are very solid on set pieces, they are fully packed with creative players like Tadic and Kostic, and they have Vlahovic in front, who’s one of the most in-form strikers in Europe.

It’s tough to beat Portugal on home soil. Since 2018 they lost just one home match (0-1 against France in the Nations League), but Serbia has goals in them, and we expect them to find the back of the net.

2nd Parlay Pick: Both Team to Score (-105)
